How to Switch to First Security State Bank

First, to help you track your progress, you can print off First Security State Bank’s Pre-Transfer Worksheet. It will also help you see what you will need to do before you begin switching over to First Security State Bank. Once you have done that, follow these simple steps to complete the process of switching to First Security State Bank:

  1. Open a new First Security State Bank checking account- our diverse checking account and options ensure you find an account that is right for you. You should also consider opening a savings account as well.
  2. Stop writing checks and making transactions on your old account- this will allow all checks and transactions to clear your old account.
  3. Switch your ACH Debits to your new First Security State Bank account- ACH debits are debits that are automatically taken out of your account, such as monthly bills. If the company you do business with cannot set up your ACH debit online, please download FSSB’s Automatic Transfer Authorization (ACH Debit) Form, complete it and send it to them.
  4. Switch your ACH Credits to your new First Security State Bank account- ACH credits are any credits to your account through payroll, Social Security, dividends, etc. Our Direct Deposit (ACH Credit) Authorization Form is available for you to print, fill out and send to anyone providing you with recurring direct deposits. Those receiving direct deposits from Social Security will need to call the Social Security Administration or visit their website at www.ssa.gov to change over their direct deposit.
  5. Cancel all online bill payments through your old account- be sure to cancel all automatic bill payments through your old account and set them up through Online Bill Pay in your First Security State Bank Online Banking account. You will need to have an Online Banking account with FSSB before setting up Online Bill Pay, so get enrolled today.

The staff at First Security State Bank would be glad to help you in switching over your account if you encounter any issues, so please feel free to contact us.
